Smile Beauty Retouch

Hey guys,

I have been retouching for a few years but never posted my before/after image here. This is my first one. I shot this image as well.
Let me know what you guys think. Be honest in your critique.
If you have any question about my retouching technique feel free to ask and I will try my best to answer your question.

Thanks,
Roy.

Re: Beauty Retouch

Hi Roy!

Great effort I must say, still I would like to point out some notes to help you make it more beautiful..

However, its a small image to judge the work on skin, but it looks smooth and even on face, but the lips still look bumpy.

The chest area looks patchy, you can make it a little uniform. Lastly, the creases near her right arm, remove them or lessen them, its not looking good at the moment. Once again, a great start I must say.. Good luck!

Hi,
it would be great if you can link to a bigger file. That one is very small to judge

Best regards!
Lucía.

Re: Beauty Retouch

Right now I feel like aside from the basic cleanup, the image as a whole took a step backward from the original. I think aside from just details, it's a difference in what I'm looking for in the image. I would expect to see a rich skin tone so that it's not distracting, pleasing color correction, and strong details like hair, jewelry brows, etc. It's just the entire thing needs a more gentle touch.

Thanks for the critique. I would really like to see some samples of your work to see what I am doing wrong.
